Chicago - First impressions

Somehow this was my inaugural trip to The Windy City and boy did it not disappoint...well maybe the deep dish. Amazing urban spaces, incredible respect for historic buildings and some surreal moments with SOM, Mies and Burnham.

YEG-YYC-ORD


Stepping out of the hotel, here we go!








No words




Perfection.






Uniqlo?!?!?!?!?! Exchange rate be damned!


Magnificent


JHT












I like tacos


Not sure about this one.




Majestic


Stunning




Don't like your music, but your hotels are just fine

I slap self for not flying to Chicago.

Speaking of incredible respect for historic buildings yea that's precious cuz NYC seems to lose it and begins to become testing ground for queer and fanciful architectures ( while they saying unique and conceptual) to screw up its cultural and classic skyline for good.
